Dreaming of a Ruby Christmas (#187)
It’s six more days of Advent, and then… Christmas! Your task is to
create a Ruby script that celebrates Christmas. Create a virtual,
ASCII Christmas tree completely with blinking lights. Or a countdown
calendar 'til December 25th. Or a script that generates the lyrics to
The Twelve Days of Christmas. Or whatever you like: some Christmas
And… Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!
P.S. Yes, I’m politically-incorrect. That said, if you’d rather
celebrate Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, New Year’s or another holiday using Ruby
script, please do!
